Everything put together! Thanks to Katie & Rani for the photos.

Waiting on the Sennheiser MKE 400 Compact Video Camera Shotgun Microphone which should arrive next week. Bought everything at BHphotovideo.com.

    Hi Ben, thanks for stopping by. The wide angle lens is awesome.

    It adds a good weight to the front of the camera which helps with smoothing out moves. And the wider viewing angle is ridiculous. If you want to see footage from the field, check out:


    Eric’s left is the wide angle on an HV20, Eric’s right is wide angle on the HV30.

    Most importantly, it looks badass on the HV30.

    Hey John, sweet rig. I’m adding a HV30 with wide angle lens to my gear as a backup to my XLH1A. I have a question about your Panasonic VW-W4307H lens converter. Is the front of this lens threaded to accept a filter? That’s very important to me and I can’t seem to find out through specs on any web site where it is for sale.

      Hey Tyge, no worries Jon is my brother’s name. I’m looking at the my wide angle and it looks like their are threads but I’m honesty not sure. How would I be able to tell (and am I giving away that I’m more of an editor than a shooter)?
